Wednesday,  July  24th,  to 

General  Arrangements  for  the 

An  invitation  circular  has  been  widely  circulated  to  all  members  of 
Eugenic  and  Heredity  Societies  in  Europe  and  America,  and  to  many  other 
persons  likely  to  be  interested  in  the  approaching  Congress.  Through  that 
circular  the  objects  and  general  plan  of  the  Congress  have  been  made  widely 
known.  Copies  may  still  be  had  on  application  to  the  Secretary. 

The  following  arrangements  have  now  been  definitely  made. 

Place  Of  Meeting.  The  Meetings  of  the  Congress  will  be  held  in 
the  Great  Hall  of  the  University  of  London,  Imperial  Institute  Road, 
South.  Kensington,  London,  S.W.,  which  is  easily  reached  from  South 
Kensington  Station  on  the  Underground  Railway,  and  by  omnibus  from  all 
parts  of  London.  (In  wet  weather  those  travelling  by  rail  can  avail  them- 
selves of  the  subway). 

Headquarters  of  the  Congress.  Until  Tuesday,  July  23rd,  the 
headquarters  and  offices  of  the  Congress  will  remain  at  6,  York  Buildings, 
Adelphi,  W.C.  (close  to  Charing  Cross  Station),  where  all  information  will 
be  supplied  and  tickets  issued.  Office  hours  10-30  a. m.  to  5 p.m.  On  and 
after  Wednesday,  July  24th,  the  headquarters  will  be  transferred  to  the 
University  of  London,  South  Kensington.  If  arrangements  for  hotels  or  for 
lodgings  have  not  been  made  previously,  members  arriving  on  and  after 
J uly  24th  are  recommended  to  leave  their  luggage  in  ihe  “Cloak  Room  ” at 
the  railway  station  and  come  to  the  office  of  the  Congress,  at  London 
University,  South  Kensington,  for  information. 

Correspondence.  From  July  24th  to  30th,  Members  and  Associates 
of  the  Congress  may  have  their  letters  addressed  to  them  at  the  First 
International  Eugenics  Congress,  c/o  The  University  of  London,  South 
Kensington,  S.W.,  where  special  postal  facilities  will  be  provided.  All 
invitations  to  Receptions,  etc.,  will  be  distributed  in  this  way. 

Languages.  It  has  been  decided  that  in  the  Meetings  and  Discussions 
the  English,  French,  German,  and  Italian  languages  shall  be  on  an  equal 
footing.  At  the  same  time  it  is  right  to  point  out  that  in  all  Congresses  the 
number  of  Members  speaking  and  understanding  only  the  language  of  the 
country  in  which  they  are  held  has  been  far  in  excess  of  those  conversant 
with  several  languages  ; therefore  those  who  speak  in  English  on  the  present 
occasion  will  be  most  widely  understood.  The  abstract  of  every  paper  which 
is  received  in  time  by  the  Secretary  will  be  translated  into  English,  French, 
and  German.  Pamphlets  containing  the  abstracts  in  these  languages  will 
be  available  on  July  24th  at  the  University  Buildings.  Members  wishing 
for  advance  copies  should  notify  the  fact  to  the  Secretaries,  and  state  clearly 
in  what  language  they  are  required,  and  to  what  address  they  should  be  sent. 


Stewards.  A number  of  Stewards  acting  as  interpreters  will  be  [in 
attendance  ; the  languages  spoken  being  indicated  by  rosettes  of  the  follow- 
ing colours  : — Red,  French  ; Blue,  German  ; Green,  Italian. 

Hotels,  etc.  The  Organising  Committee  is  prepared  to  book  rooms 
in  advance  for  intending  Members.  Lists  of  hotels  and  the  accommodation 
vouchers  have  been  sent  out  to  all  Members  with  their  membership  cards. 
Any  Member  wishing  to  pay  his  membership  fee  on  arrival  can  on  appli- 
cation obtain  an  accommodation  voucher  in  advance. 

To  make  certain  of  securing  the  accommodation 
desired,  it  is  essential  that  accommodation  vouchers 
duly  filled  in  should  reach  the  office  not  later  than 
July  10th. 

Tickets  Of  Membership.  In  order  to  take  advantage  of 
the  reduced  fares  offered  by  the  railway  companies  (see  below),  the 
official  Congress  ticket  must  be  produced  when  paying  the  fare. 
The  subscription  entitling  to  membership  of  the  Congress  is  £1  sterling ; 
for  an  Associate  it  is  10/-.  Members  may  obtain  additional  tickets  for  ladies 
at  the  cost  of  10/-  each.  These  additional  ladies’  tickets  are  transferable  to 
ladies.  Associates  are  entitled  to  all  the  privileges  of  Members,  except  that 
they  have  no  vote  in  the  meetings  and  will  not  receive  a copy  of  the  Report 
when  published.  The  tickets  of  all  Members  and  Associates  who  pay  in 
advance  will  be  forwarded  to  their  addresses  before  the  commencement  of 
the  Congress.  A limited  number  of  Day  Membership  Cards  at  5/-  each  will 
be  obtainable  from  the  Secretary’s  Office  in  the  Marble  Hall  during  the 
Congress-  These  cards  admit  to  both  the  morning  and  afternoon  sessions, 
but  do  not  carry  the  privileges  of  voting  and  hospitality. 

Inaugural  Banquet.  An  Inaugural  Banquet  will  be  held  at  the 
Hotel  Cecil  on  Wednesday,  July  24th,  at  7 p.m.,  at  which  all  the  officials  of 
the  Congress  and  readers  of  papers  will  be  the  guests  of  the  Entertainments 
Committee.  Members  of  the  Congress  can  obtain  tickets  at  7/6  each,  from 
the  Hon.  Secertary,  Entertainments  Committee,  30,  York  Terrace,  Harley 
Street,  London,  W.  Speeches  of  welcome  will  be  made  by  the  President,  the 
Lord  Mayor  of  London,  the  Rt.  Hon.  A.  J.  Balfour,  and  others.  The  Banquet 
will  be  followed  by  a Reception  to  which  all  Members  and  Associates  of  the 
Congress  will  be  invited. 

Railway  Arrangements.  Important  concessions  have  been  made 
by  a number  of  Railway  Companies  to  Members  and  Associates  of  the  Con- 
gress. On  the  railways  of  Russia,  Austria-Hungary,  Germany,  Switzerland  and 
Holland,  no  reductions  will  be  allowed  ; but  by  taking  tickets  to  a station  in 
Belgium  or  France,  near  the  frontier,  reductions  may  be  secured  by  groups  of 
not  less  than  20  visitors  travelling  together  from  those  countries  for  the  rest 


of  their  journey.  In  all  cases  it  is  necessary  to  produce  the  Congress 
Membership  Ticket  before  receiving  railway  tickets  at  reduced  rates  ; and 
arrangements  MUST  be  made  in  advance,  14  days’  notice  being  required. 
Persons  desiring  to  take  advantage  of  these  concessions  must  therefore 
forward  their  subscriptions  at  once ; and  immediately  on  receipt  of 
their  membership  ticket  should  communicate  with  the  Secretary  of  their 
country  (see  page  3).  In  the  following  list  the  countries  most  distant 
from  London  are  mentioned  first : — 

Italy.  The  P.L.M.  Company  will  grant  a reduction  of  50 % to  Members 
coming  from  Italy  via  Modane. 

At  the  time  of  issuing  this  notice  definite  information  regarding 
reduced  rates  on  the  Italian  State  Railways  is  not  to  hand. 

Germany.  Members  from  Germany  desiring  to  obtain  reduced  rates 
are  requested  to  communicate,  through  their  Secretary,  with  the  General  Agent 
of  the  South  Eastern  and  Chatham  Railway  Office  in  Cologne  (6  Domhof). 
Provided  at  least  20  Members  travel  together  on  the  journey  to  London, 
arrangements  can  be  made  for  reduced  fares  at  50%  reduction  from  the 
Belgian  or  from  the  Dutch  Frontier  to  London  and  back.  At  least  14 
days’  notice  must  be  given  to  secure  these  facilities. 

Belgium.  If  at  least  20  members  travel  together,  a reduction  of 
about  50%  is  granted.  Members  are  requested  to  communicate,  through 
the  Secretary  of  their  country,  with  the  General  Agent  of  the  South 
Eastern  and  Chatham  Railway  in  Brussels  (19,  rue  de  la  Regence).

the  Congress  will  be  able  to  obtain  at  Paris  (Gare  du  Nord)  special  15  day

the  Paris  Office  of  the  South  Eastern  and  Chatham  Railway  (14  Rue  du  4 
Septembre),  but  the  Congress  vouchers  must  be  presented  at  the  time  in 
either  case.

London  via  Dieppe-Newhaven  at  the  following  fares  : —

Great  Britain.  All  the  British  Railways  have  very  kindly  granted 
exceptional  facilities  to  members  of  the  Congress.  Return  tickets  for  the 
price  of  a single  fare  and  a third,  lasting  from  July  23rd  to  30th,  will  be 
issued  from  all  stations  in  the  United  Kingdom  on  presentation  of  the 
Congress  voucher  at  the  Booking  Office. 

Members  wishing  to  return  to  their  homes  outside  London  daily,  must 
apply  for  separate  vouchers  for  each  day  if  the  distance  is  more  than  50 
miles.  Tf  however  the  member  resides  within  that  distance,  the  usual 
sleeping-out,  arrangements  will  apply,  i.e.,  that  tickets  at  a single  fare  and  a 
third  for  the  double  journey  may  be  issued  (upon  production  of  cards  of 
membership  or  letters  of  invitation),  from  the  town  where  the  Conference  is 
being  held  to  places  where  the  delegates  reside.  The  minimum  fare  will 
be  1/-. 

Stations  Of  Arrival.  Passengers  travelling  from  the  Continent  by 
the  South  Eastern  and  Chatham  Railway,  arrive  at  Victoria  or  Charing 
Cross  Stations  according  to  the  train  service  selected.  Passengers  by  the 
Great  Eastern  Railway  arrive  at  Liverpool  Street  Station  ; and  those  by  the 
London,  Brighton,  and  South  Coast  Railway  arrive  at  Victoria  Station. 

Hospitality  Bureau.  During  the  meeting  of  the  Congress  there  will 
be  many  entertainments  in  the  form  of  receptions,  dinners,  afternoon  and 
evening  parties,  for  which  there  will  be  invitations  to  Members  and 
Associates  of  the  Congress.  In  most  cases  the  number  to  be  entertained  is 
limited,  and  it  is  desirable  that  the  Secretaries  should  have  as  complete  a 
list  of  members  as  possible  to  submit  to  the  hosts. 

All  Officials  of  the  Congress,  and  Readers  of  Papers,  and  Delegates, 

will  shortly  receive  invitations  to  the  various  entertainments  mentioned  in  the 

Members  should  apply  at  the  Hospitality  Bureau  in  the  Marble  Hall  on 
arrival , as  the  number  that  can  attend  each  function  is  limited,  and  cards  will 
be  issued  to  members  in  order  of  application. 

A limited  number  of  Tickets  for  the  Zoological  Gardens,  tickets  to  hear 
debates  in  the  House  of  Commons,  and  invitations  to  tea  on  the  Terrace  of 
the  House  of  Commons,  etc.,  will  also  be  available. 

The  German  Athenaeum  Club  has  very  kindly  signified  its  willingness 
to  accord  the  privilege  of  Hon.  Membership  of  the  Club  to  German  Readers 
of  Papers  and  Members  of  the  German  Consultative  Committee,  and  to  a 
limited  number  of  German  Members  of  the  Congress. 



The  Organising  Committee  feel  that  the  interest  and  usefulness  of  the 
Congress  will  be  greatly  increased  by  the  usual  sectional  plan  being 
departed  from,  so  that  all  papers  can  be  discussed  in  general  sittings.  This 
plan  will  necessarily  limit  the  time  available  for  papers,  but,  on  the  other 
hand,  it  will  allow  the  interest  of  all  members  to  be  focussed  on  each  question 
to  be  considered.  To  enable  the  maximum  amount  of  work  to  be  done  in 
the  time  available,  the  following  arrangements  have  been  made  : — 

Papers.  The  reader  of  each  paper  will  be  allowed  25  minutes  in 
which  to  give  a summary  of  his  paper  and  to  reply  to  criticisms.  A certain 
time,  limited  at  the  discretion  of  the  Chairman,  will  then  be  allowed  for 
discussion  (maximum  time — 20  minutes). 

Should  the  reader  of  a paper  not  desire  to  exercise  !iis  right  of  reply  he 
may  devote  the  whole  25  minutes  to  his  opening  summary. 

If,  on  the  other  hand,  he  prefers  to  reserve  a longer  time  for  reply  he 
must  reduce  the  length  of  his  opening  remarks,  bearing  in  mind  that  the 
whole  time  at  his  disposal  for  the  two  speeches  will  be  25  minutes. 

Discussions.  All  discussions  are  under  the  absolute  control  of  the 
Chairman,  who  will  regulate  the  length  of  time  allotted  to  each  discussion, 
and  to  each  speaker  in  that  discussion.  The  Chairman  will  ring  a bell  one 
minute  before  each  speech  must  end.  After  the  bell  is  rung  a second  time 
the  next  speaker  will  be  called.  The  maximum  time  allotted  to  the 
discussion  on  each  single  paper  is  twenty  minutes, — to  each  single 
speaker,  seven  minutes. 

The  names  of  persons  wishing  to  speak  must  be  handed  up  to  the 
Chairman  before  the  conclusion  of  the  speech  opening  the  Discussion. 

Badges.  A button  badge,  consisting  of  a reproduction  of  the  head 
of  Sir  Francis  Galton,  will  be  presented  to  every  Member  and  Associate. 

A silvered  medal  with  ribbon  and  clasp  will  be  presented  to  members  of 
the  Consultative  Committees,  Readers  of  Papers  and  Government  Delegates. 
Distinctive  colours  will  be  as  follows  : — 

Organizing  and  Consultative  Committees  ...  Medal  and  Red  Ribbon. 

Readers  of  Papers...  ...  ...  ...  ,,  ,,  White  ,, 

Stewards  ...  ...  ...  ,,  ,,  Yellow  ,, 

Executive  Committee  ...  ...  ...  ,,  „ Blue  ,, 

The  medals  with  green  ribbons  will  be  on  sale,  price  1/-  each,  to  all 
Members  and  Associates. 



This  programme  will  be  adhered  to  as  closely  as  possible,  but  the 
Executive  Committee  reserve  the  power  to  make  any  alterations  which 
circumstances  may  render  necessary. 


10  a.m.  The  Offices  of  the  Congress  will  be  opened  at  the  University  of 
London,  South  Kensington. 

Members  and  Delegates  are  requested  to  call  during  the  day,  to 
sign  the  register  and  enter  their  address,  and  to  obtain 
invitations  to  the  Receptions,  Dinners,  etc. 

3 p.m.  A Meeting  of  the  Congress  Executive  Committee  will  be  held  in 
the  Senate  Room.  The  Congress  Executive  consists  of  the 
President,  Secretary,  and  two  members  of  each  of  the  Consult- 
ative Committees,  and  the  President,  Secretary  and  two 
members  of  the  British  Executive  Committee. 


The  arrangement  of  the  agenda  for  the  Business  Meeting  on  the  27th.
